Writing Playlist #7-Teenagers

Dancing Queen-Abba

You are the Dancing Queen, young and sweet, only seventeen

Edge of Seventeen-Stevie Nicks

I went forth with an old age/Desire to please/On the edge of seventeen

We are Young-FUN

Tonight, we are young/So let’s set the world on fire/We can burn brighter than the sun

Smells Like Teen Spirit-Nirvana

I’m worse at what I do best/And for this gift I feel blessed/Our little group has always been/And always will until the end

These Streets-Bastille

Oh we have stained these walls/With our mistakes and flaws/But even if we won’t admit it to ourselves/We’ll walk upon these streets and think of little else

Fifteen-Taylor Swift

When you’re fifteen and somebody tells you they love you/You’re gonna believe them/And when you’re fifteen feeling like there’s nothing to figure out/But count to ten/Take it in

Anna Sun-Walk the Moon

We got no money, but we got heart/We’re gonna rattle this ghost town/This house is falling apart

Kids-Mikky Ekko

Taking on the wind cause we never learn/Start a fire just to watch it burn/Over and over/Kids, Kids/Kids are gonna do what they want

Under Pressure-Queen

It’s the terror of knowing/What this world’s about/Watching some good friends/Screaming, “Let me out!”

I’m Just a Kid-Simple Plan

Everyone’s got somewhere to go/And they’re gonna leave here on my own/And here it goes/I’m just a kid/And life is a nightmare/I’m just a kid/I know that it’s not fair

Power Hungry Animals-The Apache Relay

Everyone’s tellin’ me what to do/And I, I can’t choose/And everybody wants control/To hang me up by their noose/But if they only knew/They’d laugh and dance like fools


I’m a troublemaker/Never been a faker/Doing things my own way/And never giving up

Teenagers-My Chemical Romance

The boys and the girls in the clique/The awful names that they stick/You’re never gonna fit in much, kid

Perfect-Simple Plan

And now I try hard to make it/I just wanna make you proud/I’m never gonna be good enough for you/I can’t pretend that I’m alright/And you can’t change me

Another Brick in the Wall-Pink Floyd

We don’t need no education/We don’t need no thought control/No dark sarcasm in the classroom/Teachers leave them kids alone


I’m feeling overwhelmed, overwhelmed/It’s getting out of line, line, line/I know I’m not alone/Just adolescents, you and I/It doesn’t make me feel any better

The Anthem-Good Charlotte

Go to college, a university/Get a real job/That’s what they said to me/But I could never live the way they want
